I use a Pentax *ist DL system camera and it works fine for me. Almost all pictures are taken by my camera. A couple of days ago I purchased a new camera lens, a Tamron AF 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 LD Di macro for about 167 € (Euro). A very good price and it has a macro function too.
Here is a picture I took of a honey bee with a macro setting.
